Assume that the lottery pays $10 on one play out of 100, it pays $2000 on one play out of 7,500, and it pays $12500 on one play out of 150,000. What probability should be assigned to a ticket's not winning anything?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I haven't got the slightest clue how to solve this..I would assume you divide each individual one by how much $ lottery gets. This is statistics isn't it? I took Calculus!);

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The probability of winning a prize is given by: \[\large \frac{1}{100}+\frac{1}{7500}+\frac{1}{150000}=\frac{1521}{150000}\] Therefore the probability of a ticket's not winning anything is: \[\large 1\frac{1521}{150000}=\frac{148479}{150000}\]
